Hi All,
I was hoping to get some help from all you Gurus out there.
I have a Radeon 8500 with 64mb.
I run WIN XP pro.

I cannot run most games. Diablo 2 for example comes back with an error that says. Error 22 unable to initialise direct draw.

When I looked at dxdiag it has hardware acceleration not available for direct draw.
When I looked using Powerstrip I saw that AGP transfer mechanism was disabled.

I desperately need help to enable AGP transfer mechanism.
Please help

Thanks in advance
Jeff

I myself could not run Diablo2; it reported no supported graphics.

The fix is use XP drivers for your graphics cards and then load the game- after you played and loaded atleast 1 time successfully; reboot.

Then you may update to any driver version you wish :)

hope this works...

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
